Smarter, Faster, Better, by Charles Duhigg

Find in catalogFor each chapter on a secret of success (Motivation, Focus, Goal Setting, and Decision Making, among others), there are at least three stories of people putting those principles in action. Some of those people include the creative team behind Frozen, laid off auto workers, and one of the world’s best poker players. The stories are surprisingly suspenseful and illustrative, full of big ideas. The appendix brings it all down to practical applications, with ideas I’ll be implementing, such opening up email replies and writing one line to kickstart action when I feel stuck, or coming up with stretch goals that challenge me to reach far, rather than set easy but unimportant goals that I may waste time of just because of a need for cognitive closure.
